On 01-11-2021 at 1633 hours, a suspect had been trespassed from a drugstore by staff. The suspect returned and refused to leave. He also possessed a folding knife in his hand (not opened) while threatening to assault a victim. The suspect then left the area on foot prior to police arrival but was contacted several blocks north of the store on 32 AVE W. The suspect was contacted by officers when he then produced the knife blade open and made threats to harm officers.  An officer deployed his Taser, which appeared ineffective (heavy clothing), then gained verbal compliance and took the suspect into custody.
